PechaKucha Night, devised in Tokyo, as an event for young people to meet, network, and show their work, has turned into a worldwide celebration, with events taking place all over the world, including right here in Pittsburgh!  Drawing from its name, the Japanese term for “chit-chat”, PechaKucha relies on a presentation format based on a simple idea, 20 images x 20 seconds.  It is a dynamic presentation style where presenters have a total of six minutes and forty seconds to pair words and images.
